Eagerly awaited action adventure title ‘Adrift’ has been snapped up by Sony and will be exclusive to PlayStation 3. Maybe I’m exaggerating slightly with ‘eagerly awaited’ as no one has seen or heard the game yet, it’s not even been officially announced but that hasn’t stopped me from tracking down details and summarising them for you in one handy news item.
The game is moving towards “adult” with a narrative dimension thrust and a slick visual style SF, roughly a ‘Heavy Rain’ boosted with hormones in a world of SF .
Finally, I have used my most fearsome web ninja techniques to bring you a little exclusive; I can reveal that the game will feature a character called ‘Edge’.
Actor Tercelin Kirtley has posted his CV online and it lists ‘MOTION CAPTURE: ADRIFT de Sony et Dontnod. Rôle: Edge’. Monsieur Kirtley has previously lent his moves to Nathaniel Williams, the religious nut job in Heavy Rain and has also worked as a voice artist for Ubisoft.
Please bear in mind that absolutely none of this information has been confirmed, the game has been in development for three years so an official announcement must be on the horizon.
Update: Check out the video below for some concept art (in French).
